Another warm, and sunny day is ahead for the north state. Dense fog has developed early this morning from Oroville to the South. Visibility has fluctuated between a quarter to a half a mile in that area. Temperatures are starting out in the high 40's to low 50's in the valley, and are projected to climb back into the low to mid 60's this afternoon. The Northern Sierra dipped into the high 20's to low 30's, while the Northern Mountains only dropped into the mid 40's overnight. Mountain areas will be in the 50 to 60 degree range this afternoon.
The ridge that's bringing clear skies, and above average temperatures is expected to shift East tonight, and showers look likely for Christmas Eve. Snow levels will drop to around 4500ft. Temperatures will dip back into the mid 50's for the valley tomorrow, and stay in that range for the remainder of the week. Dry, and mostly sunny conditions are ahead for your Christmas Day forecast.
Dry conditions should persist into the weekend, with temperatures lingering continuing to trend in the mid 50's for the valley, and 40's to 50's in the mountains.
